THE SEVERE WEATHER has affected travel plans for people all across the country today.
With thousands across the country without power and telephone services, the storm has also impacted on rail services and flights with power lines and trees down and strong winds sticking around.
In Dublin, Pearse St Station is closed for the day because of storm damage to the roof. Trains will be passing through the station but will not stop there.
Irish Rail said all trains are running on all routes with some delays:
At Dublin Airport, some flights were diverted or delayed. In a statement, the DAA said:
Passengers are advised to check with their airline’s website before coming to Dublin Airport today.
Aer Lingus said that a number of its flights are delayed or cancelled today and Ryanair is reporting delays on some flights but said it has no cancellations today.
Irish Ferries had already cancelled their Swift sailings for today because of high winds and seas.
Flights out of Shannon airport have been affected, but flights are arriving in Cork again after being diverted to Shannon late last night.
Across the country, AA Roadwatch and gardaí are reporting trees and debris on roads with surface water making some roads impassable.
In all cases, travellers are advised to check with their operator before departing and motorists are urged to slow down and take care on the roads.
